New video explains waste and research materials at INL Site

IDAHO FALLS — A new video helps demystify waste and nuclear research materials at the U.S. Department of Energy's Idaho site. The video is being shared with Idahoans via news media, public websites and online forums.

The long history and complex nature of work at DOE's Idaho site has left many confused about the nature, source and amount of radioactive waste and nuclear materials there. To help explain, Idaho National Laboratory produced a new 6-minute video that provides simple explanations and clarifies differences between liquid radioactive waste, buried waste and used nuclear fuel.

INL hopes the video will help inform Idahoans who want to participate in conversations about cleanup progress at the Site, INL's nuclear energy mission and other discussions led by Idaho's Leadership in Nuclear Energy Commission chartered by Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter.

The video is available at www.inl.gov or INL's YouTube and Facebook pages, which are all linked from the bottom of INL's home page. News media also can download a high-definition version from INL's ShareFile site by calling the media contacts above.

INL is one of the DOE's 10 multiprogram national laboratories. The laboratory performs work in each of DOE's strategic goal areas: energy, national security, science and environment. INL is the nation's leading center for nuclear energy research and development. Day-to-day management and operation of the laboratory is the responsibility of Battelle Energy Alliance.
